Berger tips Dennis to keep top McLaren job

Formula One World Championship
Gerhard Berger, once linked with the top job, has now backed Ron Dennis to keep running McLaren.

For some months, rumours and reports have been doing the rounds suggesting a shareholder wrangling is taking place behind the scenes at Woking.

It was said Dennis, the group CEO and chairman, had only until the end of January to find investors or else Mansour Ojjeh and the Bahrainis could replace him.

Some of the wilder speculation was that former McLaren driver and ex Toro Rosso co-owner Gerhard Berger might be in the running, but the Austrian is now tipping Dennis to retain the backing of his fellow shareholders.

“Who else would they take?” Berger is quoted by Auto Motor und Sport.

“They may no longer be best friends with Ron, but he knows his way around like no one else.

“And that he managed to lure (Fernando) Alonso back to McLaren is another strong point,” Berger added. (GMM)
